First, it is a factory setting that turns the running lights off when the bright lights are turned on, so that's nothing to worry about. Now the headlight issue could just be a bulb. If this has a headlamp for both high and low, it is possible it just blew the high beam part. If there are seperate lamps for high and low beams, then try replacing the bulb. It should not be an electrical problem unless you had to remove or disturb alot of parts to change the wires and plugs. Let me know if this helps :)

Headlight are dim


check output of the alternator as there may not be enough current produced to keep the battery charged. Check drive belt tension and condition.

My headlights won't turn on, the yellow driving lights turn on but the headlamps won't. Also the lever that controls bright lights doesn't work but the turn signal and cruise control does.


First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.

Where is the fuse for the dash lights . the light are bright with key on. Go dull when the headlights are turned on


That is normal. They go bright because during the daytime the outside light is also bright so the lights compensate for the outside brightness by making your dash lights also bright. When you turn your headlights on it assumes it is nighttime and you don't need to have the brightness to see the dash lights so it compensates for this. If you want them to be dimmer, near the light switch there is a roller button to turn your interior lights on just roll that some and it will either make the dash lights brighter or dimmer.

Lights will not turn off, brights blue lite on all the time, lites will dim but bright lite stays on, must disconnect bat when car not in use


Your turn signal/headlight multifunction switch has failed.

To replace it, remove the four screws from the bottom of the steering column cover, split the cover apart.
Unplug the one connector out of the bottom of the headlight switch, then depress the two levers, on top and bottom of the switch housing, and slide the switch out.
Install in reverse order.

No driving lights?


Hello there - I would suggest checking the fuse for your lights in the fuse box, and check under the hood for a fuse/relay box, and have the relay tested. If the fuses and relays are good, open the hood, and try to check the connection to the headlights and make sure they are securely connected. You also mentioned that when you push the headlights switch forward for brights, and turn on the night time head lights, and neither come on but the daytime lights do, makes me suspect the switch itself may be bad. I would first check the fuses and relays if any. Second, I would replace the bulbs (if replacable). Other than that, my last guess would be an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere. I hope this information helps you fix your lights. Thank you for your time and consideration in my suggestions/answers.
